RFC: Is this the whole conflict's parent article?[edit]

The consensus is "No, we don't need a parent article; the split of three top articles (Israeli–Palestinian conflict, Arab-Israeli conflict, and Intercommunal conflict in Mandatory Palestine) is fine."

Per Wikipedia:Summary_style#Rationale, for major topics Wikipedia should "distribute information across related articles in a way that can serve readers who want varying amounts of details, thus giving readers the ability to zoom to the level of details they need and not exhausting those who need a primer on a whole topic". It goes on to discuss the parent-child article structure. I have tried in different ways to get the community focused on this question for the huge and complex Israel-Palestine topic, but I have continually failed to get a proper discussion going, probably because I have been asking the wrong question. Here is another attempt, with a hopefully better question.

Please could editors comment as to whether you believe that this article should be the overall parent article of the whole conflict, which began in 1917 or 1920 depending which scholar you look at. Proposed options below:

  • Yes, this article should be the parent article of the whole conflict
  • No, the parent is at another article
  • No, we don't need a parent article; the split of three top articles is fine

  • Question: What are the other two top articles? Strawberry4Ever (talk) 20:15, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
The three top articles are:

  • No, we don't need a parent article; the split of three top articles is fine: It looks like there is a clear division of scope of the top three articles. Having three articles is fine as long as there are links to the other articles where appropriate. I don't see how making Arab-Israeli conflict the overall parent article would make things clearer.

  • No, we don't need a parent article; the split of three top articles is fine. And this RfC seems to be yet another attempt at asking the same questions as were asked here and here... Number 57 09:42, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
  • No, we don't need a parent article; the split of three top articles is fine As stated above. Also, using "Israeli" to describe pre-1948 conflicts is technically inaccurate. So long as Israeli–Palestinian conflict appropriately links to the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, it's great for these articles to sit side-by-side.--Carwil (talk) 12:44, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
  • No, we don't need another article. The Arab-Israeli conflict is the parent article of Israeli-Palestinian conflict; the sectarian conflict in Mandatory Palestine and various violent events against Jewish communities in the Middle East and North Africa were the background to the Arab Israeli conflict, but since there was no Israel (and technically also no Arab League until 1945), it is very much non-continuous. The Kashmir conflict between India and Pakistan similarly began in 1948 with a background of ethnic tensions.GreyShark (dibra) 17:49, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

Typo at the end of the "Background" section[edit]

At the end of paragraph "Background" it says: "as suggested, for instance, by Paul in Romans 11Cfrom the Bible.hristian Zionism teaches that the return of Jews in Israel is a prerequisite for the Second Coming of Christ"

The "C" before "from the Bible" belongs to the next sentence. In addition "in the Bible" is the better preposition. Corrected version:

"as suggested, for instance, by Paul in Romans 11 in the Bible. Christian Zionism teaches that the return of Jews in Israel is a prerequisite for the Second Coming of Christ"

However, as the article is locked I can't initiate the correction myself.

I would prefer this wording: "as suggested, for instance, by the apostle Paul in his letter to the Romans, chapter 11. Christian Zionism teaches that the return of Jews in Israel is a prerequisite for the Second Coming of Christ" Markewilliams (talk)
Yes check.svg Done. Although it might be obvious, I kept the words "in the Bible" for the benefit of non-Christians. Strawberry4Ever (talk) 16:48, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
